Canon EOS 5D Mark III Specs and Price in the Philippines

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III has been announced weeks ago and we're still not sure why there have been no follow-ups in the local scene. Maybe everybody's busy with phones and all, not that I mind.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark III is an upgrade of Canon's 2008 Mark II. There have been various improvements with the Mark III, but not significant enough for Mark II owners to consider upgrading. Then again, if you have lots of money to burn, why not right?

Proceed to the section below for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III technical specifications and price in the Philippines.
